    I was taking a video on my Nikon Coolpix L3 and it was buzzing, but the video still worked. I tried to shut it off, but all it does is buzz and say lens error.

Hi:
Lens errors like this usually happen as a result of something damaging the lens in some way.
It could have been against something to prevent the lens from moving out.
It could have been dropped when the lens was out.
If the lens is impacted when the lens is out, damage can occur.
If there is a buzzing, grinding noise as the lens extends, then the probability of damage to the small plastic gears, internal guides or other internal lens parts is high.
What can be done is, as mentioned a few times in my posts, to hold the lens back or pull on it as the camera starts.
This may cause more damage, and may not help at all, but some cases may re-align the internal parts in the lens assembly. This may be worth a try, since the camera is useless unless the lens works right.
Hope I can give some help here on these.

Camera lens stuck


Look at some of my posts today.
This may be that the lens is off track and may be able to be pushed back by a little force as you start the camera....see my other posts on this problem.

How can i fix a stuck lens on a Nikon COOLPIX L11?


It worked. I just gently nudgged the extended(stuck) lens to one side by hand. (the side which had the gap.) There was a click sound and the lense housing fell back in place. Sweitched off and switched on again and the lense started working fine. thanks.

Lens is stuck open and making a clicking noise!


It costs more to fix than replace. It's quite asinine. And I wouldn't recommend Nikon again.
